Naming is a ritual in India as it reflects the sentiment and aspiration of the elders from the new born. When we were conceptualizing an online property website that would help buyers and sellers, the first name that came to the mind was Makaan.com as it is the most commonly used word among the Indian real-estate fraternity (property seekers, agents and builders). Most Indians also refer to their dream house as "Makaan".
Makaan.com promises to be the most preferred way of finding your dream property and is committed to help you make a wiser property decision as a buyer or a seller. Over a period of time, we want our esteemed users to acknowledge Makaan.com as an "expert friend" that can help them make one of their biggest and most important decisions in life in a sharper, faster and easier way.
